It’s been a pretty hit and miss affair with my blogging this month.
It’s been a boring month all round though so not a lot to blog about.
This kids have kept themselves to themselves.
I have hardly seen Murron for the last five weeks as she exercises her freedom to the limit these days.
She’d better make the most of this weekend because it’s back to school on thursday and she’s going into her GCSE year.
She is fully aware of her boundaries for the next year but when the reality hits I thnk she may argue. We’ll see.
Marjorie has pretty much parked her bum on the sofa or on her bed and watched TV and played video games for the whole holiday.
Her friends have manged to drag her out a couple of times but that’s about it.
Dharma has practically moved in with Nan over the last five weeks. She’s pottered around with a few friends and has occasionally looked after baby annabelle in her own little PICU unit in her bedroom. Poor baby Annabelle is still intubated and has had a few operations. Unfortunately she shows no signs of improvement. lol
Either she is going to be a Dr or we are harbouring a serial killer!!
Anyway, me and Ian have just worked… and worked.
Even on the couple of weeks annual leave I did nothing but work around the house and garden.
We have really got to get away for a family break next year.
We’ve had a few family trips to the cinema and I’ve had a couple of nights out with the girls from work but life just seems to be a bit stagnent at the moment.
It’s time for a change.
With that in mind I have decided to look into some training at work.
It occurred to me that although I was lucky enough to get my job with no official qualifications, I have been there for over 5 years and they will all have been for nothing if I don’t get some sort of formal qualification to back them up. You never know what the future will bring and it’s best to be prepared.
I also need to look at my health.
I really need to give up drinking the beer and eating the crisps.
I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve blogged that over the last couple of years and now that I’m walking again, I really have no excuse.
If I start to lose the weight then maybe Ian will follow suit.
I may also be able to drag Marjorie off the sofa and get her a little fitter too.
It is a lovely sunny day today.
There’s not a cloud in the sky.
Think I may spend the weekend in the gardens.
They’re not too bad at the moment but another few rainy days and there’s going to be a lovely jungle taking shape.
I need to keep on top of it now and it will make things easier to keep tidy before Winter sets in.
I just need to keep in mind that STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS is out on Bluray on monday!!!
Trip to Tesco after work I think!!
